39 days to D (Due) Date!

15 Dec

I’ve been pretty busy this week sniffing my butt and sleeping, so I forgot to post!

Anyway, my brother has been busy growing and adding layers of fat this week! According to the Baby Center, his fat layers — which will help regulate him body temperature once he’s born — are filling him out, making him rounder. His skin is also smoother than ever. My brother’s central nervous system is maturing and his lungs are continuing to mature as well. He continues to kick Mom a lot and Dad and I are seeing a lot of belly movement from him, especially in the morning and at night. At his last ultrasound he had pretty long legs, but I bet mine are still longer!! Mom and Dad went to the doctor on Tuesday. My brother is measuring at 36+ weeks by Mom’s belly. Mom also had a non-stress test and will have one every week until my brother decides to grace us with his presence. The non-stress test measures his heartbeat over a period of time. It also measures Mom’s contractions! She had one or two while hooked up to the machine yesterday. Mom has to have this test to make sure my brother is growing well, as Mom’s blood work at the beginning of her pregnancy showed that she had low protein in her blood, which sometimes makes babies stop growing — based on my brother’s size, he isn’t having trouble growing!!

Mom and Dad are in the home stretch of their prenatal classes at Prentice. On Saturday, they had infant care. On Monday, they had pediatric care and met a really nice pediatrician. Tonight, they are going to breastfeeding class and they will finish their classes on Saturday with Great Expectations. Great Expectations will walk them through the entire labor and delivery process, and it includes a tour of the hospital.

This past weekend was busy for Mom and Dad. On Friday night, they went to PwC’s Holiday Party at the Sheraton. They had a great time.

Kate and Yoshi also stayed with us this past weekend. On Saturday, Kate made pancakes -but no pupcakes for me :(. Mom and Dad took it easy on Saturday night after infant class. Sunday, Kate, Yoshi, and Molly threw a little baby shower for Mom and my brother at Uncommon Ground. Kate and Yoshi got my brother some really great onesies (pictures to follow) and some feeding gear and Molly got my brother a bunch of shampoos, lotions and bath stuff. They had a lot of fun!

After the shower, they took a trip to the new Target, and then headed home to bake. Mom and Kate made gingerbread and pretzel rolls. Dad cooked a yummy pork tenderloin for dinner. Again, I had kibble :(.

Alright, time to go back to napping and sniffing my butt! Have a great rest of the week!
